|Sadayatana 168: Ecstasy and Horror - John Tocher|

|Sadayatana 124: The Fragrance - John Tocher|
All the men she's been with and now you, just you, and the barges going by, masts and hulls, the whole damned current of life flowing through you, through her, through all the guys behind you and after you, the flowers and the birds and the sun streaming in and the fragrance of it choking you, annihilating you. - Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer (1934) startartisttitle00:00Peer SaerQuicksand Part VII excerpt04:07Tree HelicopterThe Numbest Station11:30Phil Julianphotic ellipse28:07Stefan Paulussal...

|Sadayatana 131: One Step Ahead - John Tocher|
By and large, horror fiction is the most difficult to domesticate because part of the point is that it's one step ahead – or behind – everybody else's taste. And I'm not really convinced I'd like it to change. There's something very healthy about horror fiction being always a little bit on the outside. It's the wild-dog genre. - Clive Barker, The Advocate (Feb. 21, 1995) startartisttitle00:00Grove Of WhispersThere Are No Records04:04DRPolar Lights07:36Steam flowGloomy Mansion14:36ZeitwindWa...

|Sadayatana 101: Delight In Shadows - John Tocher|
Why should this propensity to seek beauty in darkness be so strong only in Orientals? The West too has known a time when there was no electricity, gas, or petroleum, yet so far as I know the West has never been disposed to delight in shadows. Japanese ghosts have traditionally no feet; Western ghosts have feet, but are transparent. As even this trifle suggests, pitch darkness has always occupied our fantasies, while in the West even ghosts are clear as glass...

|Sadayatana 136: The Days - John Tocher|
You think when you wake up in the mornin yesterday dont count. But yesterday is all that does count. What else is there? Your life is made out of the days it's made out of. Nothin else. You might think you could run away and change your name and I dont know what all. Start over. And then one mornin you wake up and look at the ceilin and guess who's layin there? - --Cormac McCarthy, "No Country for Old Men" (2005) startartisttitle00:00Molly RingwormVictory Over The Machines00:54DeerHacked01:45Co...

|Sadayatana 171: From The Beginning - John Tocher|
Every moment in your life is a turning and every one a choosing. Somewhere you made a choice. All followed to this. The accounting is scrupulous. The shape is drawn. No line can be erased. I had no belief in your ability to move a coin to your bidding. How could you? A person's path through the world seldom changes and even more seldom will it change abruptly. And the shape of your path was visible from the beginning...

|Sadayatana 133: Age of Science - John Tocher|
A long time ago, man would listen in amazement to the sound of regular beats in his chest, never suspecting what they were. He was unable to identify himself with so alien and unfamiliar an object as the body. The body was a cage, and inside that cage was something which looked, listened, feared, thought, and marveled; that something, that remainder left over after the body had been accounted for, was the soul...

|Sadayatana 112: Into Darkness - John Tocher|
A few seconds later, new black clouds plunged everything into darkness, but I stayed on my feet, suffocating, feeling my hair in the wind, and weeping wretchedly, like Simone herself, who had collapsed in the grass, and for the first time, her body was quaking with huge, childlike sobs. - Georges Bataille, The Story of the Eye (1928) startartisttitle00:00emptywhaleA Lack of Warning Signs May Be A Sign Itself04:16Another Neglected HobbyStrange Awakening17:38Wings of an AngelDance Me To The End O...

Thanks to C.P. McDill for recording some of his 78s especially for Sadayatana. You'll hear one at the end of this show. C.P. McDill says: "Recorded off a totally acoustic wind-up gramophone... a portable Phonola from the 30s, popular with picnickers and soldiers. in good shape..." "I used to take it to Prospect Park... someone asked me to turn it down. I said 'it only has one volume: ON'..."

|Sadayatana 046: Another Room - John Tocher|
One of the more experimental shows --with the occasional beat. Sort of an audio investigation of the ambient side of "witch house". According to Wikipedia Witch House "...features a fusion of techniques rooted in Swishahouse hip-hop -- sluggish tempo with skipping, stop-timed beats -- coupled with elements from genres such as noise, drone, and shoegaze." A semi disastrous show this one. I was playing for two hours without actually being connected to the stream...
